Claude Cooper 'Stay A While' (Friendly Records)

Claude Cooper
Stay A While' / 'Dance Tonight'
(Friendly Records)

The mysterious Claude Cooper who has wowed many folks since 2022, achieving major radio support across the board, was finally unmasked recently. As you now probably know, it's none other than Boca 45. The 1st single and album 'Myriad Sounds' were pretty deep to say the least, and then the pot got further stirred with the addition of Afrika Baby Bam aka Brain Fog in a rework of the album.

But we're concerned with NOW and this brand-new single for the 1st week of 2024. Claude has evolved again and boy oh boy, we like this new direction. Kicking off with a honky tonk piano before cut-up strings/horns and a sweet vocal hook elevate it into anthem territory. Make no mistake, this is an end-of-night banger, the vibes are off the scale on this near-perfect 3 mins of hip hop/soul/jazz.

It's the kind of single that gets one's anticipation levels excited. I for one will relish Claude's forthcoming album (if there is an album?) if it's like this.

BRAVO Claude!
